Racist Arizona

The Daily Kos had an interesting article the other day: “Join Major League Baseball Boycott of Arizona: Hit the Pocketbooks.”

Next year’s MLB All-Star game is scheduled to be played at the Diamondbacks home in Phoenix. But last week’s new overly-strict/possibly unconstitutional anti-illegal immigration measure SB 1070 has put the state in hot water.

Of course, being in the southwest (as well as being horribly racist), they’re used to hot water. Think that’s harsh? Where was Super Bow XXVII played in 1993? Why, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

But where was it supposed to be played?

Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.

It was pulled because Arizona voted against a Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

So I say pull the game. Give it to Minnesota for their kick-ass new Target Field.

I’d say Boston, but we want the 2012 one, for the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park.
